Into the Finnish wild

To many, the freedom to roam the countryside is a luxury. In Finland, it is everyone’s right.

Explore the wild, stroll along forest pathways, put up a tent, pick mushrooms and wild berries – no matter who owns the land, there is no charge for enjoying it.

Nature is never far away in Finland. The country’s serene forests and crystal-clear lakes encourage everyone to enjoy their splendour. See the beauty of autumn as the world changes colour. Fill your lungs with fresh air. Cycle along a curtain of evergreens. Paddle down a lazy river. The forests are dotted with cottages, where city dwellers unwind and recharge. Nature is a cure for all ills – it is guaranteed to fill your mind with positivity and calm.
